    With the likes of Moonlight, The Shape of Water and Parasite winning best picture, despite odds being against them for their genre and/or style, what genre/style of film is next?

    Will an Animated Film take the top gong soon?
    Can a laugh out loud comedy beat out the heavy dramas?
    What will it take for a Doc to win?
    Will all our horrors make voters scream to tick their box?
    Will we venture out of this world with Sci-Fi?
    Can Scorsese be silenced with a superhero win?

    I can dream that it’s horror, but I know it’s not.

    Definitely not animated or documentary. Probably sci fi, followed by comedy then dramatic horror

    Animated could do it one day. The studios will make a very safe “grown up” animation and every award body will pretend that an animated movie that isn’t only for kids is something revolutionary.

    Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)

    Probably sci-fi. “Gravity” was sooo close to winning BP. Pixar would need to reclaim its former glories again before getting an animated film in serious competition for BP.

    Probably sci if but I’d love it to be animated. WALL-E should have gotten it.

    Well, Pixar could win with that “Jamie Foxx becomes a poop emoji in heaven” flick. It looks like a typical Pixar Oscar bait. Clueless character is guided by a plucky female SNL alumni (animated form of course). He learns about whatever virtue/value of the day. Critics praise the movie to heaven high cause of its heart and soul. Boxoffice prospect also looks good. They are going to tap themselves on the back domestically for having a black lead, but they also made his ghost white (with blueish sheen) for about 90% of the running time cause they love foreign money. And anyone who points out the latter will be gaslit as alt-right, incel, Russianbot, etc.

    We have the winner.

    Documentaries never receive Best Picture nods. An expanded field is irrelevant to changing that. An animated movie is a real possibility if a foreign language film can breakthrough.

    I can definitely see a science-fiction movie winning best picture.

    Especially with everything that’s happening in our era right now.
    By the way, I think Interstellar should’ve been the perfect movie to score nominations and wins for the genre lately. Just like The Dark Knight should’ve made history as a super hero film at the Oscars.

    Horror… it’s complicated, unless it’s a movie like The Exorcist, not too violent, with a great director (Friedkin was already an Oscar winner when he made it) , great story, great casting & acting, great writing. It might be possible.

    Something has to be very special about it. Get Out was noticed because of that, the social themes.

    Animated films, Wall-E and Toy Story 3 would’ve been great Best Picture winners as well.

    I bet on Sci-Fi. Maybe in next 10 years. Who knows!?

    Horror and Sci-Fi will have their time, it’ll just take the right film (or more likely, the right director). Animated does not seem too far-fetched either.

    A doc has never even received a nomination, so that’s the first hurdle. So many missed opportunities through the years.

    A true comedy could easily happen (and has before), they just need to make sure that it’s also not a terrible film. That’s what often stands in the way. It’s far easier to identify a bad comedy than a bad drama, which is routinely the problem of the Academy.
